It takes strength to drop your defense and put your trust in someone else, but the rewards will so much be yours when you find someone whose dear and kind.

You swore just to get by
that you must rely

solely on yourself,
and nobody else.
You couldn't trust no one
since time begun.
But you're hurting all the time.
Do you want to live your prime
being all alone?
Having no one of your own?
You know I really feel for you.
I'd rather be your fool,
than go on believing
just what your perceiving.
It doesn't make any sense
and it's all at your expense.
You can lean on someone else
without losing yourself.
You only feel the disconnect
when you look at trust as a defect.
It's hard for me to understand
this type of a plan.
I'm feeling so wrung out,
like i'm always in a drought.
I just want to break through
and get deep inside of you.
No more hiding the pain.
There's nothing for you to gain.
Each fragile, broken part
just needs a tender heart.
You're feeling like you're strong.
But you're going about this all wrong.
I've always wanted to break free
the pain deep inside of me.
But I have to trust someone else.
I can't do it all myself.
So I'm giving you my hand.
Who knows where we'll land.
But we won't be on our own.
No more going it alone.
